Washing Instructions

GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS

Gentle cold machine / hand wash

Wash coloured garments separately

Mild detergent (no bleach based detergents)

Do not soak

Line dry in the shade – no dryers (commercial or home dryers not recommended)

Do not iron


Excess dye is often released in the first wash or two (especially with strong colours such as red & maroon). This does not mean the colour is fading or faulty, it is simply excess dye & may need to be washed separately a couple of times to be completely removed.


GARMENTS WITH LOGOS + NUMBERS

Instructions as above, take special notice of detergent base used + drying instructions. Prolonged exposure to heat (dryers, irons etc) will dramatically shorten the life of logos & numbers, causing them to crack, peel + stick together.

Use of bleach based detergents can cause the logos to fade & should be avoided.

Do not dry clean.



TREATMENT OF FABRICS

Some degree of ‘pilling’ is expected under normal use of our garments, however excessive rubbing against rough surfaces will cause extensive pulling & pilling. Therefore rough surfaces should be avoided to prolong life of garments.



SOCK CARE

Water temperature not above  30º

No bleaching

No ironing

No dry cleaning solvents

Do not tumble dry

Avoid direct sunlight

Fabric softener optional



AVOID WASHING ALL GARMENTS WITH OTHER GARMENTS SUCH AS 
JEANS WITH ZIPS etc TO PREVENT PULLING OF FABRICS & YARNS.
